‘View’ audience happy about Trump’s imprisonment idea, but Whoopi brings up reality check.

Is a Presidential Pardon Possible for Trump?

Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg has finally indicted the leaders of the political opposition on flimsy charges mostly because they’re the leader of the political opposition. This has caused a lot of buzz, with some people excited about the prospect of Trump being put in an orange jumpsuit. However, Whoopi Goldberg reminds us that you can put Trump in an orange jumpsuit, but you can’t take him off the presidential ballot.

Can Trump be Pardoned?

Trump’s main challenger for the Republican presidential nomination, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, has publicly announced he would pardon Trump if there were a conviction. However, presidential pardons only cover federal crimes, and Trump is facing 34 felony counts in New York and will also face some counts in Georgia.

Co-host Sunny Hostin, who is a trained lawyer, thinks that it sends the wrong message to pardon a president who was impeached twice, but was also just flouting the law, especially on Jan. 6, and tried to destroy our very democracy. She believes that Trump needs to be held accountable.

Should Trump Accept a Pardon if Offered by Biden?

Should Trump accept a pardon if offered by Biden?

On Wednesday, the hosts of “The View” discussed whether or not this was possible, given that presidential pardons cover federal crimes. It remains to be seen what will happen, but one thing is for sure: Trump is accountable to no one and needs to be held to account.

The View Hosts Cheer at the Idea of Trump Being Jailed, Whoopi Goldberg Reminds Them of the Law

Do you think former President Trump should be sent to jail?








During a recent episode of “The View,” co-host Sunny Hostin expressed her desire to see former President Trump in an orange jumpsuit. The audience cheered in agreement, but Whoopi Goldberg reminded them that the law does not prevent a president from serving while in jail.

This cold water moment brought the conversation to a halt, as Goldberg pointed out that the ability to run for president behind bars exists for a reason. The hosts and audience members who were so quick to applaud the idea of Trump being sent to jail probably would have criticized his supporters for chanting “lock her up” during the 2016 presidential campaign.

Why the Ability to Run for President from Jail Exists

The ability to run for president from jail exists because the founders of the United States believed that the people should have the final say in who becomes president. They did not want the government to have the power to disqualify candidates based on arbitrary criteria.

While it may seem strange to some that a person could run for president while in jail, it is important to remember that the law is designed to protect the rights of all citizens, even those who have been convicted of a crime.

The Hypocrisy of “Lock Her Up”

During the 2016 presidential campaign, Trump’s supporters chanted “lock her up” in reference to Hillary Clinton’s use of a personal email server while she was Secretary of State. Many people criticized this chant as being inappropriate and un-American.

Now, some of the same people who criticized “lock her up” are cheering at the idea of Trump being sent to jail. This is a clear example of hypocrisy, and it undermines the principles of justice and fairness that are supposed to be at the heart of our legal system.

Conclusion

While it is understandable that people may have strong feelings about Trump and his actions, it is important to remember that the law exists to protect the rights of all citizens, even those who are unpopular or controversial. We should strive to uphold the principles of justice and fairness, even when it is difficult or unpopular to do so.

The Case of Eugene V. Debs and Donald Trump

Let’s talk about Eugene V. Debs, the socialist union activist who co-founded the Industrial Workers of the World and ran for president five times as the Socialist Party candidate. In 1920, Debs was serving a 10-year prison sentence for advocating resistance to the World War I draft. Despite this, he still managed to secure 3.4 percent of the national vote.

“Fomenting resistance to the draft in a time of war is a more serious crime than potentially miscategorizing nondisclosure agreements made with chatty porn stars during a political campaign seven years ago.”

Now, let’s fast forward to Donald Trump. The political establishment is doing everything in its power to prevent him from running for president again. They will fabricate any charge necessary to put him on the sidelines. But the reason our system doesn’t disqualify those convicted of either offense from running for president is simple: should the people be barred from voting for a man whose crime is opposing a draft for an unjust war?

The Raffensperger Case

While there may be more meat to the Raffensperger case, there likely isn’t a whole lot more of it. Unless there’s a considerable body of evidence we have yet to hear that proves intent to coerce election fraud on Trump’s part, using the word “find” in relation to vote counting doesn’t prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the then-president was ordering the secretary of state to start stuffing ballot boxes posthaste.

But that’s what fills Hostin and her cohort with glee: These cases are taking place in Manhattan and Fulton County, Georgia — bastions of liberalism where an enterprising prosecutor stands at least a coin flip’s chance of persuading a jury to convict the former president on conspiring with Ted Cruz’s dad to kill JFK.

“Fortunately, brighter minds than these flibbertigibbets knew that, at some point, public sentiment could be so aroused as to weaponize the criminal court system against a candidate.”

Fortunately, brighter minds than these flibbertigibbets knew that, at some point, public sentiment could be so aroused as to weaponize the criminal court system against a candidate. That’s why, orange jumpsuit or not, Trump is going to be on the ballot if he wins the GOP primary.

  • Don’t forget the case of Eugene V. Debs, the socialist union activist who co-founded the Industrial Workers of the World and ran for president five times as the Socialist Party candidate.
  • The political establishment is doing everything in its power to prevent Donald Trump from running for president again.
  • Using the word “find” in relation to vote counting doesn’t prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the then-president was ordering the secretary of state to start stuffing ballot boxes posthaste.
  • Fortunately, brighter minds knew that, at some point, public sentiment could be so aroused as to weaponize the criminal court system against a candidate.

So, while “The View” audience may be gleeful at the idea of Trump being jailed, Whoopi reminds them of the cold, hard fact that our system doesn’t disqualify those convicted of either offense from running for president.
